Title: Into the deep
Artist: hrymfaxe
Genre: Fanart
Warnings: None
Characters: Ulmo/the sea

Prompt from the Just An Old-Fashioned Love Song Challenge at [community profile] silwritersguild: Ghost Love Score by Nightwish - and more specifically this part of the lyrics:

Scent of the sea before the waking of the world
Brings me to thee
Into the blue memory

Artist note: When I read those lyrics I was immediately reminded of this lovely story by [personal profile] pandemonium_213: Ulmo's Wife, and its wonderful mix of science (evolution) and the world of Tolkien, not to mention the relationship between Ulmo and The Sea. This is more like an illustration of Pandë's story than an original idea of mine, so credit goes to her along with my thanks for the inspiration.

Another idea employed here is that of the Valar being able to change their form, so Ulmo starts out man-shaped, but ends up as specks of light floating in the embrace of his lover.

I admired that story when I read it and I agree the quotation from the lyrics fits.

Your drawings are striking and catch the mood of the story and the nature of the relationship between Ulmo and the Sea really well!

Beautiful work! I love everything from the contrast of the colors to the movement on the page from the surface (literal and figurative) to the deep.

I'm particularly impressed by the water! That looks like it was difficult to do.

Oh, wow, Hrym! Fabulous, gorgeous paintings (you know that I am in awe of your skills with watercolors), and I love, love, LOVE your interpretation of Ulmo shifting into motes of light. I'm so honored that you found inspiration in my story!

Aaaah this is amazing!! <3 There's a lot of movement but there's also control in them? Also very jealous of your water colours, the water looks so good!
